The Independent Christmas Gift Guide

Good morning! Make yourself a cup of something hot and take 20 minutes of quiet for yourself. Firstly, has anyone been soundtracking their life with Self Esteem lately? What an absolute banger of a Glasto set she gave in the summer. My pick of the festival for sure. Not that I went. I enjoyed it…

About Me

In 2020, we sold our home in Essex and moved to Cornwall. Previously a HR Manager at a racecourse, I decided to step away from my corporate career and focus on a creative outlet that felt more in line with.. well.. me.

After years of being totally obsessed with small independent brands and charity shop bargain hunting, I would always get so many, where is that from? requests that I finally decided to write my own blog.  

With a background in fashion retail, kick started by work experience at Habitat, I’m passionate about interiors and helping people find the perfect gift. I’m married to Martin, we have a rescue sausage dog Kenya and we recently welcomed our first child.

I am obsessed with vintage and retro styling, and promoting independent sellers.

Let’s hang out
